2 T. bleu cheese crumbles
1/4 c. plain bread crumbs
2 tsp. fines herbs (spice islands recommended)
1/2 tsp. olive oil, plus 1 T.
4 (6 oz.) filet mignon steaks
salt and freshly ground black pepper, for seasoning, plus 1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 c. cognac
1 c. organic beef stock
1 tsp. crushed garlic
1/4 c. frozen chopped onion

Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with foil; set aside. In a small mixing bowl, combine bleu cheese, bread crumbs, herbs and 1/2 tsp. of olive oil; set aside. Add 1 T. olive oil to a large saute pan and heat over medium-high heat. Season steaks with salt and pepper and add to pan, but do not crowd. Sear 1-2 minutes per side, just to brown. Remove pan from heat and transfer steaks onto prepared baking sheet. Top each steak with 1/4 of bleu cheese mixture. Finish cooking steaks in preheated oven for 4 minutes for medium-rare, 6 minutes for medium, and 8 minutes for well done. Return pan to stove and deglaze with cognac by scraping bits from bottom of pan. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce liquid by half.
Top steaks with sauce.
